We Love: CatBird Wedding

Flowers and engagement rings are a pairing as old as weddings themselves, and as NYC’s only luxury florist dedicated exclusively to weddings, the Bride and Blossom team has a particular affinity for unique bling. Brooklyn-based jeweler CatBird now has an exclusive line of engagement and wedding-day jewelry (and even a Wedding Annex you can visit!), and we can’t get enough of their classic-yet-edgy vibe. Here are some of our favorites!

 

Whether you’re picking out a ring with your fianceé, dropping hints to your longtime beau, searching for the perfect bridesmaid gift, or looking for “something blue” to wear down the aisle, CatBird Wedding has you covered.
